"Extending Amtrak service from Boston to Portland, a line that is to start running on Saturday, has taken longer than building the transcontinental railroad and cost more than $50 million.. It has amenities like being able to order wine and cheese, a shrimp cocktail or a portobello mushroom sandwich, read a newspaper or connect a laptop computer. Plans are in the works to allow the trains to be a host for business conferences."
